New Last Jedi MAFEX First Order Stormtroopers from Medicom

Medicom have announced two new MAFEX figures in their Star Wars line based on First Order Stormtroopers seem in the Last Jedi.

The first is the Executioner, a figure we have seen lots of from other companies including Hasbro and Bandai. The figure will be released with a full set of accessories including the standard First Order Blaster Pistol and Rifle. The main weapon is of course the executioner axe which comes with both closed and open head piece and some electro FX pieces. The figure will retail at 7800 yen, that is £51 or $69 - but expect to add more for import. The figure is number 69 in the MAFEX movie releases and is down to ship in August 2018.

The second figure takes on the Black Series Amazon set in terms of accessories - and not only does it match it, it goes to the next level. Using the same sculpt as the Executioner, the figure itself is a standard First Order Trooper as seen in the Last Jedi. Collectors can then arm him with a variety of weapons and pauldrons to create the look they want. The accessories included are blaster rifle, blaster pistol, heavy blaster and stand, heavy weapon strap and ammo pouch, backpack, macrobinoculars, riot shield, riot baton (one open and one closed) and three rank pauldrons - orange, black and white.

Like the Executioner, the set retails at 7800 yen - around £51 / $69 plus import. We can't locate a number as yet for the Stormtrooper release, but expect it to be #70 or thereabouts. A release date is also not known at this point.
